Bubur Cikini (BurCik)

Bubur Cikini is one of legendary street food vendors in Jakarta. When I arrived at KFC Cikini, I saw two vendors with the title Bubur Cikini, both are crowded, so I wasn’t sure which one is the original. The first one I saw at KFC parking lot has BCR sign on its cart, which stands for Bubur Cikini Raya.


The second one I saw has sign Burcik H.R. Suleman Cirebon, located in Bintaro Bakery, right across KFC and BCR (the first one I saw). According to my driver, this one  is the original one.

The man in black is the porridge master. He scooped the porridge, chicken, cakue, emping, tongcai (冬菜 dōngcài / pickled daikon) and fried scallion. His assistant’s job was only placing a plate at the bottom of the bowl and a spoon inside the bowl before serving to customers. 20140823_090220

The hot tea tasted a bit different from regular tea, and there was 20140823_090117 20140823_090319

There are two carts under the same brand, the first one is the porridge, and the other cart sells Martabak Telor. 20140823_090409 20140823_090609
